    as soon/early as tomorrow

    Is the meaning of the phrase "as soon as tomorrow" the same as in "as early as tomorrow"? Is "as soon as tomorrow" even right? Also, is there a difference in usage in BrE and AmE?

    I've only ever heard 'as early as tomorrow', but 'as soon as tomorrow' would mean the same.

    Re: as soon/early as tomorrow

    I can't find a difference between them and would use both.

    The report could be ready as early as tomorrow.
    I want to go to London. I might go as soon as tomorrow.
